The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce received a $2,500 donation from the Perdue Foundation to support the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!). This donation makes Perdue an Investor Panel sponsor, giving it an exclusive judging seat when students present their ideas at the YEA! Investor Panel event this spring. YEA! is an innovative, afterschool program that transforms local middle and high school students into real entrepreneurial successes.
